Springfield XD-M Elite 9mm Pistols – New for 2020

The new Springfield XD-M Elite 9mm pistol series is made up of four models that are designed to fit practically any role you might have for them.

Springfield XD-M Elite 9mm Pistols – New for 2020


The new Springfield XD-M Elite 9mm series represents the pinnacle of performance in factory striker-fired pistols. Taking the polymer platform that broke the mold and incorporating numerous upgrades and improvements, the XD-M Elite redefines what you should expect from modern, striker-fired firearms. 

At the heart of the new Springfield XD-M Elite is the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META) system, a refined trigger designed to wring out the most from the pistol’s most important interface with the shooter. Featuring a flat face and integral overtravel stop, the META system delivers one of the best trigger pulls available on a production polymer-framed pistol. 

In addition to the crisp and clean trigger pull tuned to the pistol’s fully cocked striker, the Springfield XD-M Elite also features increased-capacity magazines holding up to 22 rounds of 9mm ammo. These magazines mate up with another impressive upgrade on the XD-M Elite — removable extended and flared magwells, designed to make ultra-fast reloads a breeze.

Ushering in the new Springfield XD-M Elite family of purpose-driven pistols are four duly appointed models, ranging from competition-ready and tactical variants to duty-size and CCW-ready versions. These models are as follows:


XD-M Elite Precision and Tactical OSP

The XD-M Elite Precision (XDME95259BHC) features a 5.25" hammer-forged barrel and extended slide with an adjustable rear/fiber optic front sight system while the XD-M Elite Tactical OSP (XDMET9459FHCOSP) sports a hammer-forged 5.34” threaded barrel with thread protector, a slide capable of mounting today’s top red dot optics and suppressor-height iron sights. Both pistols feature a “standard” magwell design that mates up with its 22+1 capacity magazines, for the ultimate in 9mm firepower.


XD-M Elite 4.5" and 3.8"

The Springfield XD-M Elite 4.5" (XDME9459BHC) features a standard-length slide and 4.5" hammer-forged barrel, while the XD-M Elite 3.8" (XDME9389BHC) is topped off with a shortened 3.8" hammer-forged barrel and matching compact slide for enhanced concealability. Both pistols feature “short” magwell systems that mate up with 20+1 capacity 9mm magazines, combining amazing capacity with compact dimensions. Also, both versions feature U-Dot rear sights combined with fiber optic fronts. All four variants come packed with two magazines.

Other upgrades to the Springfield XD-M Elite pistol series include an ambidextrous slide stop and improved slide serrations, with enlarged grasping grooves for slip-free purchase. The result is a pistol that handles as well as it shoots and shows you what today’s top polymer-framed pistol can truly do.
